Ask Nathaniel to try to implement a filter that sends a user back to the post editor if their title is something like "In need of help".

Not sure how the internals of the forum work, but I can't imagine it's *too* difficult.

When I asked for help, I was specific about it. I wanted people to know what I was asking about so I could get an answer quickly. I didn't want people clicking, deciding it was boring, and leaving without answering. I wanted only people interested in solving that particular problem coming in and helping me solve it.


It only makes sense to be descriptive.

Jomarcenter, it happens with or without rules in place because most people don't bother to read the rules, so they behave as if the rules aren't in place.


I am much more likely to look at a thread and provide help if I can see the title in the list is something I am familiar with. I am annoyed if I go to a thread only to realize it's something I have no interest/experience in, and remember I've already been there 5 times and didn't recognize it because of a stu...

stupid name.


And when you're asking for help, the last thing you want to do is annoy the people you hope will help you.

We should just lock them, with mod text "Please post a new thread with a meaningful title"

Gonna take a break from helping people with resource requests, it has been too much of a disappointment lately.
whats the easiest way to add an on-map command in RPG Maker? like when you press a button the character just jumps or runs when its held? should i get an ABS plugin and customize?
Thinking of doing a crowdfunding kind of thing on my ko-fi page, but i don't have an audience :kaoswt2: and i don't want to go to the big crowdfinding sites cause i can't guarantee that i'll complete the project. It's just for fun but i still need some more tools. Anyone else in the same boat? :kaodes:
Pretty proud of this train station i'm making!

Steam has announced a new feature to let people switch between playing on PC and on Steam Deck with the same save. I'll come back to add support for it to my steam plugins when the time comes.
